Looking to jazz up a bank of ho-hum cabinetry? Throw open shelving into the mix and watch your kitchen options expand.

Does your kitchen need a jolt of energy? Add a shot of color. Coat the backs of open shelves in a saturated paint color, or cover them in pretty wallpaper. Choose a color that contrasts strongly with the cabinet finish to make an emphatic statement; if subtlety is your style, go with a more restrained hue. The color you choose also depends on what you plan to showcase — this collection of white dishware looks luminous against a turquoise backdrop. Courtesy of Plain & Fancy
